old perceptions, an old shell
career, status, wealth
and a new one
part of the journey
a good choice
but one that still leaves me anxious
so I ask advice from old ladies
surrogate grandmothers
and from those that seem content
best advice: both paths are false
ego is a mirage
grasping for itself
just be
working on mindfulness

a chapter closes
along with the year
time for a new URL
